This week is Feeding Tube Awareness Week. Using a feeding tube is part of daily life for some people that are unable to consume enough healthy foods to sustain health, growth, or optimal nutrition status on their own. Nutrition for people who use feeding tubes can come in a commercially manufactured formula or through blenderized food. Using blenderized food is a great option for those who are using tubes long term, due to nutritional and economical value. How awesome is it that Blendtec’s home use blenders are powerful enough to pulverize regular foods to the point that they can be used in feeding tubs without complications.
